On the hills of Todi, in the heart of Umbria, this 18th-century farmhouse with its 1,135 sqm and 10 bedrooms is perfect for someone looking for a well-established accommodation business deep in the green and easily reached. As of now, the property is run as a boutique hotel but it is always possible to convert it into a simpler B&B. The property is completed by 6,000 sqm of park with pool.
The property is located in a very panoramic position over the Umbrian hills and in the clear days offers an unrivaled view over the Tiber Valley, the Subasio, Terminillo and Vettore mountains and the cities of Perugia and Todi.
Quickly accessible through a very short stretch of plain well-maintained unpaved road (roughly 50 m) and extremely close to a town offering all the services (4km; 5’), the property is located in a position allowing quick access to several towns of central Italy (Todi, Montefalco, Perugia, Orvieto, Assisi).
The closest airport is Perugia (42km; 35’) and for international flights Roma Ciampino and Roma Fiumicino can be reached in less than three hours by car.
DESCRIPTION OF THE BUILDINGS
The main farmhouse (904 sqm – 9,727 sqft, 8 bedrooms and 13 bathrooms) is laid over four floors organized as follows:
- Basement: garage (load/unload area), heat central, storage rooms, cellar, pantry, two bathrooms and two closets for tools.

The warehouse (55 sqm – 592 sqft) hosts the compensation tank and the filtering and disinfection systems for the above-lying pool.
It is also possible to create new structures for a total of roughly 400 sqm of additional space which would allow increasing the accommodation capacity of the business boosting it to 15 beds.
STATE AND FINISHES
The buildings, dating back to the 18th century, have been attentively recovered and restored between 2004 and 2006 respecting the original volumes and trying to preserve the look of the property while using modern materials and complying with the most modern anti-seismic criteria imposed by the European Union.
On the outside, the house boasts exposed stone walls, wrought iron grating and solid wooden doors. On the inside we have terracotta floors, exposed wooden beams and marble in the bathrooms. Internal walls are entirely plastered and painted in light colors (white and ochre).
The main farmhouse has three outdoor areas (a pergola and two wooden porticos) ideal to relax or have dinners with friends and relatives. Next to the pool there is another wooden L-shaped pergola.
The garden of the property (6,000 sqm) is well maintained, fitted with an irrigation system and accommodates a bocce court. Still on the garden we find a beautiful trapezoidal panoramic heated swimming pool (135 sqm – 1,453 sqft).
The property is then completed by roughly 1.0 ha of arable land.
The property has recently been equipped with a charging station for electric cars.
USE AND POTENTIAL USES
The property is currently run as a boutique hotel, thanks to its quiet and panoramic location not far from the basic services. The business’ successfulness is proven by excellent ratings awarded by notable magazine and websites such as Trip Advisor and Booking.
The property could also be used as a private residence, while keeping for oneself the guesthouse (to be then converted into a private house) and leaving the farmhouse active as hosting building thanks to its numerous bedrooms.
